It’s Here! Onesearch is Live!

The John M. Pfau Library’s Onesearch system went live as of 8 a.m. this morning.  Please take a look!  As with any huge system changeover, even with the most diligent work and attention to detail behind the scenes, there will be “bumps” along the new path.  Should you encounter any, please let Stacy Magedanz know about them so we can get them fixed (screenshots are a plus!).

We thank you for your patience!
